Summary

Editor’s Note: Hi James, while I should clarify that you most likely do not carry a full-sized knife sharpener with you everywhere, I wanted to showcase your EDC as a reminder to new knife owners that keeping an EDC knife sharp will eventually be something to think about. The Spyderco Sharpmaker is easy to use and yields good results for touch ups and general maintenance — which is important, because a sharp knife is safer than a dull and unpredictable one. Aside from that, I see you have some nice choices in your Leafstorm, classic G-Shock and Led Lenser flashlight. I have the Leafstorm myself and while it’s a great ‘little big knife’ I think it gets outclassed by more comfortable, newer models in the Chaparral and Techno, both of which feature Titanium and a premium steel as well. An interesting thing about the Led Lenser to note is that it’s one of the few flashlights that can adjust its beam profile through focusing optics — meaning it can ‘throw’ a beam far away or be used up close with a diffuse, wide, floody beam. Lastly, while your core items look good, I would suggest upgrading that Sharpie pen with the broken pocket clip to a more sturdy Stainless Steel variety, like this one. Thanks for sharing!

TPT (Titanium Pocket Tool)

All too often, pocket multitools either try to do way too much or simply not enough to justify carrying one. There's the 25-in-1 tool without a single usable feature, or the overbuilt hunk of metal that only opens bottles. But BIGiDESIGN's new Kickstarter project, the Titanium Pocket Tool (TPT), shows plenty of promise. It balances size, functionality, and aesthetics often sacrificed for an exhausting list of features.

The TPT's small enough for keychain or coin pocket carry, yet big enough to give you a solid grip on it. Each tool packs in 15 wrench sizes, a bottle opener, a hex bit driver, and a flathead screwdriver/pry bar—all while maintaining excellent ergonomics. A hidden magnet in its central slot holds two types of inserts in place. You can configure the TPT with a double-sided, finger-safe box opener/camping fork or a standard utility blade.

Best of all, the TPT's grade 5 titanium construction allows it to stay small, rigid, and durable enough for daily use while carrying as slim as just a pair of house keys. See the Titanium Pocket Tool's unique design in action and pledge for your own on Kickstarter.
